“Go some place else!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013 via mobile

The moment we drove up late at night, to check in, the lobby was locked! We had to check thru a little tiny window. I could barely hear what the lady on the other side was saying! Their parking lot is divided in two sections. The front (somewhat nicer side) was all filled up. It's also very narrow, by the way. The back side parking area is larger but also darker, not enough lighting. It's an old two story hotel. No elevator. The room we got had two queen beds but it was very crammed, leaving very little room to get around. Was disappointed to find out we couldn't adjust the temp. on the fridge in our room. The knob to adjust the temperature was missing! Upon arrival, the room was extremely hot so we had to leave our door open for a while and turn up the AC. Few minutes later, we noticed a HUGE water bug (that looked like a cockroach to me...yuck)!!! I was so disappointed I wanted to leave immediately but we were very tired and it was already passed midnight so we stayed but never again! We've stayed at other much cleaner and nicer Best Westerns, for even a better price. I'd pay a bit more and stay somewhere else. Oh, one last thing, their breakfast isn't that great. What made it even worse was the breakfast room was very small, crowded, and extremely hot! Unhappy & uncomfortable.

Thank you very much for your review.We are sorry that you have a negative experienced during your stay with us and we hope that all of the issues can be easily corrected. Our hotel may be older but it's clean. We believed we have suffecient lighting through out the hotel and has never been an issue before with other guest. Sorry about not having elevator and smaller rooms.

We hope that you change your mind and give us onother try someday. Thank you very much for staying with us.

Sincerely,
Manager

We spent two nights here -the motel is aging with very small rooms, The room was, however, clean and had a decent TV, wifi, fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. The bathroom was clean, but small. The breakfast was quite decent, but if the motel were full, the breakfast room would soon be overcrowded. The staff was friendly and efficient. The stay was OK, but we'll look for more modern accommodations the next time we are in the area.

Room Tip: Select a room on the back of the building.

Front desk staff both morning and night were very friendly. Easy check in and out. A smaller hotel, which I liked, makes parking easier. Standard continental breakfast, with make your own waffle machine. The facility is a little dated, but the beds were very comfortable and I really liked having a microwave and refrigerator in the room. Convenient location. Would stay here again.

Stayed here so we can get up early to hike up to potato chip rock at Mount Woodson. Room was clean and beds were very comfortable. I didn't know room came with fridge and microwave which was a plus. Free parking and wifi. Didn't bother with the breakfast because there was so many people. We went to eat breakfast at Cully's down the street. Good food, large servings with cheap prices.

No matter where else I have to stay in Southern California, I always come "home" to the Best Western in Poway. I'm treated like family. The breakfast is always hot and ready, the cleaning staff is courteous and efficient, and any special requests are handled quickly and nicely.

The room was clean, the staff was friendly. The breakfast was OK. The bed was comfortable, if the bedspread was a little worn (cigarette burn). Poor reception on the TV. The fridge and microwave were definite pluses. The electrical outlets were so worn that there were few that would actually hold a plug in them (they would always drop out). But the biggest problem was the noise - the walls and ceiling are thin - you can hear everything. Footsteps clomping around in the second floor were especially loud, as were the car noises from the parking lot. Location was pretty far from the center and not convenient to public transport (except for buses), though there is a single express bus in the morning to the center not far from the hotel.

Room Tip: I'd suggest a second floor room if you could.
